International Business Development - UKGSF

The UKGSF International Business Development strand aims to support the development of UK screen content businesses that focus on revenue generation through export and international expansion.

This funding will provide grants for growth strategies that begin in 2024 and span three to five years (see below information on the tracks within this strand), to support companies that have identified opportunities to develop and expand in terms of turnover and scale of Intellectual Property (IP) creation, exploitation and acquisition, with the express aim of enhancing the company’s international revenue, activities and profile.

The aims of this strand are to:

  • support the transformation of UK screen content businesses through international activity
  • stimulate business innovation, entrepreneurship and risk-taking in the UK screen sector when trading internationally, and in particular to seize new global export opportunities as part of the UK Government’s Global Britain objectives
  • support the corporate development and growth of independent companies already operating in the UK screen sector across the four nations of the UK by helping them to capitalise on opportunities in the global marketplace
  • assist ambitious, promising companies to reach the next level of their development, and to help them attain investment readiness, based on compelling strategic plans for corporate growth through international activity
